I just kicked the Marlboro Man out of my house
    #7586936 - 11/02/07 11:02 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

:awesome:

Or in other words, I quit smoking yesterday. Cravings so far are surprisingly mild, I guess it's a motivation thing. 22 hours without a cig and all is well so far.

My lungs didn't like smoke and my cardiovascular system can't be happy with the jolts nicotine provides. On top of that I hate the fiending effect, the effect that you "got to have it".

I hope that this time once more it'll last for years and years, like my last quitting attempt did. If I break free I don't want to smoke a single speck of tobacco ever again.

Smoking sucks. Tiny reward, huge price to pay.

Theres some :crankey: and some craving, but my lungs feel better already. It kinda helps not to be sucking smoke into them every hour, go figure :wink:


Anyone else quitting? Any quitting stories you'd like to share?

Yeah I quit once... when I went to jail :P

Involuntarily..
The first week/first 4 days was the hardest.. it was more of a psychological addiction than physical withdrawel.. I had been smoking about a pack a day for ~7 years. After the first week I didn't really have any cravings anymore. However they say, it takes 21 days to fully break a psychological habit.

I've been on and off that wagon for a long time now.

The sad part is even tho you feel SOOOO much better, your brain still wants to go back. 1 day is easy. By the end of the third day, the slightest amount of stress will have you reaching for a cig.

Cold turkey is a real bitch, but people do it all the time.

On Monday, I'll try yet again. :goodluck:

Dude, the first week to two weeks is the hardest.

If and When you get over that hill, it's pretty much easy street from then on. Of course you'll have cravings and temptations but really the first two weeks is the worst most hellish part. Stay strong and fight through it!

Good luck!

I used to smoke a little, around half a pack a day. I was staying with some people who would chain smoke like no other and it was completely disgusting so I quit. I still have a cig sometimes when I'm drinking. I think the best thing is to keep yourself occupied so you don't have time to start thinking about smoking.

There's this book out that's really famous that supposedly is a wake up call for smokers. I think the author just recently died. It helped 2-3 ppl at my old office quit.

I never read it... I smoked back for a few years during collegeish times I still enjoy a clove or two every few months, but for the past few years I haven't touched em.

I used to throw away my matches and lighters towards the end of college which just made it harder for me so I cut back sometimes.

Then I moved to SoCal and started learning to surf. That's when I really felt it and had to make a decision to stop.

Wasn't too hard. I suppose I was never really at big of an addict.

I quit a couple years ago when I had no job, no money, unemployment had just run out and the tobacco taxes had just been raised. It was hard, but I pulled it off.

I used exercise to take my mind off withdrawal. Every time I had a craving, I would do ten pushups. I got in shape at the same time as quit smoking. Maybe something similar could help you, maybe not.

Remember Quitters, Inc from Stephen King's Cat's Eye? Anything's better than that, right?

Well, good luck and remember: you will not only feel better, but food is gonna taste great in a couple months. After a year or so your immune system rebuilds itself and you won't get sick as often or as bad.

Congratz!

I quit 4 days ago cold turkey.  Worst I've noticed from it so far is I have a really shorter temper and a larger vocabulary.  I've also been waking up every 30 minutes at night.  I kind of like the withdrawal though... it's like I have more energy, be it from frustration or wanting to kill someone, I've been able to focus into things I want to do.  I'm forced to stay busy making me more productive.

I've quit too many times.  This time is for real.  :suicide:

You all make me want to jump on the bandwagon. i quit for a week a few months ago then started up again. It is so hard because on the weekend when I am getting hammered I really love those cigs. Other than that they are meh. I am going to *attempt* to still own a pack of cigs but only take it out with me on the weekends. other than that no no.

Because of this thread, I'm going to quit smoking.
Well, not BECAUSE of this thread, but you know what I mean.
I've been thinking about quitting for the past 3 years, and I've never made so much as an attempt. And what better time than now.

I've said it before (and I'm sure I will again) but you have to want to quit. If you've tried to quit but can't...I'm sorry to say but you want to smoke (or at least some part of you does).

When you want to quit, you will.

I quit (again) about two months ago. I'm doing very well, I might add. I have zero physical cravings...but when I am out with my friends I can't help but really want to smoke.

That's how I started in the first place, too. So I guess for me it's a social thing. I've had 2 or 3 smokes with drinks since I've 'quit'. I feel good, tho! Smoking really is dirty. I didn't want to believe it, but it is true. Sometimes I can smell smoke on people who have just had one and it really is offensive. It smells like a dirty ashtray and makes me kind of nauseous.

So good luck with being an ex-smoker! Your body loves you!

2 years ago I quited cigs cold turkey after being a smoker for 5 years. At the same time I took a break from smoking pot so I can't tell if there were any physical withdrawals because all nights were sleepless. Few months passed and I started smoking pot again and everything went well. Meanwhile I've only smoked once 2 cigs and half a dozen trying drags at different occasions. Damn I just remembered in the last summer I smoked about 5-10 rolled tobacco ones after smoking pot. Every time it felt for 5 minutes like I had ingested some GHB.

Quit cold turkey Tuesday before last.  This is my first time quitting after about 4 years of smoking.  The physical cravings, have been almost non-existent; I had a couple headaches and bouts of anxiety the first couple days, but after that, it's all been mental/habitual problems.  It has been surprisingly easy so far.  I honestly only crave maybe 5 times a day on average for the past week.

My strategy is just take one craving at a time.  Just realize that it is just a craving, and let it go.  Realize that "I" do not want a cigarette, it is my addiction that needs it.  I will no longer be a slave to my addiction.  I feel so much better, not only health-wise, but more importantly, esteem-wise.  I feel better about myself that I am taking more control over my life.  I am becoming less destructive to my body.  That's a large part of my motivation to quit.

I just hope I don't see it as a viable option to start smoking again.  I don't want to be one that decides to quit every week, and fails every weekend.  I know I can quit, it's just a question of will I lie to myself and say "I can't make it in the long run".

Good luck to everyone quitting, even though I don't think 'luck' is really a factor here.

:thumbup:
